Report: Martinez to Tigers

Victor Martinez The first big free-agent signing of the offseason may be coming soon, as ESPNdeportes' Ignacio Serrano reports Victor Martinez is close to a four-year, $50 million deal with the Tigers.

Martinez will return to the American League Central, where he played for the Indians from 2002 to 2009, when he was traded to the Red Sox.

Martinez hit .302/.351/.493 with 20 home runs for the Red Sox last season and is a career .300/.369/.469 hitter.

The Tigers have money to spare, with several big contracts coming off the books for 2011. The team announced earlier in the day that they would not be offering arbitration to their five free agents, Magglio Ordonez, Johnny Damon, Jeremy Bonderman, Bobby Seay and Gerald Laird.

Seay will miss another year

Bobby Seay
Left-handed Tigers reliever Bobby Seay has missed the entire season with a shoulder injury, and now that injury will cost him another full season.

Seay, who had shown some late-inning promise the past couple of years, was told late in spring training that he had a torn rotator cuff. He decided to try to rehab the injury this season rather than having surgery, but it hasn't worked, and now he'll have an operation that will knock him out at least 10 months.

The operation "is something I know I need to do," Seay, who has no contract after this season, told the Detroit Free Press. "If I didn’t get anything done, my chances of pitching again are zero percent.”

The odd thing is that the operation will be on his labrum, and his rotator cuff is apparently not injured at all. It took six months to figure that out? If the injury had been correctly diagnosed in the first place, perhaps Seay, 32, would have had surgery right away and been on track to pitch in 2011. Seems like someone somewhere has some explaining to do.
